Warre and Peace

We wanted the bars in the hive to be removable if the comb was cut from the sides of the box.  So, I took the top bars and cut a notch in each end with a narrow blade on my table saw.  I then measured out the bar spacing per the plans and drove a small finishing nail into the rabbet for the center of each bar.  I cut the heads off of the nails so the bars would be easy to pry off.  We plan on using our long bread knife that we use to cut brace comb in the top bar hives to cut the comb loose from the box walls if individual comb inspection is required.
